Samsung launches the first four-camera phone, the Galaxy A9
The main difference between this and other devices at the same price is that it comes with the world’s first four cameras installed. This may sound like a trick, and in some ways it is, but actually each of the four cameras has a different and useful purpose.
The “main” camera comes with 24 megapixels, and behind it comes a 5-megapixel lens that allows you to play with the depth of the field and focus on the subject, creating a truncated background.
The third camera has a 8-megapixel 120-degree angle and Scene Optimizer that uses AI Scene Recognition to identify the subject and adjust the settings accordingly. Finally, there is a 10 megapixel telephoto lens with 2x optical zoom and a 24-megapixel camera for selfie’s “imperative”.
Beyond the cameras, the A9 is a good phone. The device has a bright 6.3-inch display and is powered by an octa-core processor Snapdragon 660. Comes with 6GB of RAM and 128GB of storage, and up to 512GB of expandable memory via the microSD card.
The 3.800mAh battery is better than the ones found in the most similar devices.
